Tesla Sues to Sell Cars Directly to Consumers in Louisiana

Tesla has filed suit to challenge a Louisiana law it says restricts its ability to sell electric vehicles directly to customers and violates its constitutional rights.

The lawsuit filed last week in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana is the latest action by Tesla to try to open markets to its model of selling cars directly to consumers rather than using dealers as intermediaries. Tesla argues the state law, among other things, infringes on interstate commerce.
